Myths About Your Hair You Should Stop Believing In
Most of us have grown up with plenty of stories related to our hair. There’s the one about not washing your hair at night or else it will attract ghosts. Some people say you shouldn’t cut your hair if you’re a woman or else something bad will happen. All these superstitions may have some root in truth, but they’re mainly just misguided notions. Here are some that I’ve heard of over the years.
Eating instant noodles will make your hair fall
Instant noodles should be consumed in moderate amounts, but not for the reasons you think. Instant noodles often have a high salt content that can increase your risk of high blood pressure and related illnesses. However, there is no scientific proof that it has any effect on your hair.
Dandruff is caused by dirty habits
In some people, dandruff is caused by a fungal infection. However, these types of dandruff often clear up quickly when an anti-dandruff shampoo is used. If you have chronic or continuous dandruff even after using anti-dandruff shampoo, then the cause of your dandruff probably isn’t an infection. It may be due to a dry scalp, hormonal imbalances or an allergic reaction. None of these have anything to do with being ‘dirty’ and not washing your hair often enough.
Cutting your hair short will drive men away
Okay, this one is pure nonsense. I had a few friends who shaved off their locks when they graduated from University, and immediately everyone around them started berating them for being ‘unwomanly’ and un-feminine. The truth is, as a woman, your confidence is what will get you through life and bring you happiness, not the length of your hair.
Keep living life to the fullest, and don’t let what others say about your hair bring you down. Hwaiting!
